Django Outbox is an app that enable you to see the emails sent by your project through the web browser.

Project Description

Capture all mails sent and show it in a simple web interface.

Quick Start

Install the package in your environment:

$ pip install django-outbox

Configure your django development settings file to use file based email backend:

from os import path

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.filebased.EmailBackend'
EMAIL_FILE_PATH = path.join(ROOT_PATH, 'tmp', 'app-mails')

Also add django_outbox to your installed apps:


Add the django outbox url to your

from django.conf import settings

# This will prevent from showing the outbox in production. The outbox
# will only be available when the DEBUG setting is true.
if settings.DEBUG:
  urlpatterns += patterns('',
      url(r'^outbox/', include('django_outbox.urls')),

Now just run your application in debug mode and access /outbox. All should be working!
